Interview with Judd Greenstein and Joshua Frankel for Urban Omnibus (click link for full interview)
Composer Judd Greenstein: A lot of the writing for Megan Schubert in Act I exists in her beautiful, classically trained, soprano range. But she also has this unbelievable belt voice that you only hear, really for the first time, in its full power, at the very, very end of Act I when she answers Bob Jacobs's question: 'Jane, what are we going to do?' And that winds up being the gateway to what is to come in Act II, where that becomes much more where she lives vocally.
